Rules of the Races
Races are run—or paddled—over a fixed course, (not fixed in the terms of the outcome, you understand). Spectators select the starting positions from out of a hat, the ducks are lined up in the gate by our highly trained ‘Quackatiers’, are placed under orders and are off. Using only the flow of the water the little quackers swim their way to the finish.

There are prizes for the owners of the winning ducks with 1st and 2nd places going through to the Grand Final.

You’ve studied the form book (in your Race Day Programme) and feel lucky. Put your money where your beak is and back it! You could win £10 for 1st, £5 for second (please note that there is no payout for 3rd place). Use the form card to help you pick your winner for the final race.
